found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
My name is Barry and I am 2 years old. I weigh about 10 lbs and came into the shelter after animal control discovered I was being mistreated at the hands of my previous parents.
The shelter medical team x-rayed my rear leg to make sure there were no broken bones.
The nerve is severed on my rear leg and it has been determined to be an “old injury,” so there is no chance that surgery to my hind limb would be a success. I’m being given glucosamine tablets to help strengthen my joints and a tiny drop of cod liver oil every 3rd day to help boost my immunities. I’m now on the road to complete health. I have been known to favor my hind leg lately when it’s cold & rainy. It still gets sore and I need to have many long, slow, walks as part of my recuperation so that I will eventually be able to bear complete weight on my hind leg and make it stronger over time.
Because I was an “evidence” dog for an “inhumane treatment” case, I was held at the shelter a little longer than some. But like most, when my time was up, I was a goner for sure. Ken-Mar Rescue helped me get out of there and took me to their vet for a “nose to tail” inspection. I’m one of the lucky ones: I got out alive and in fairly good shape. Now all I need is your help to find a great, “fur-ever” home.
